I agree with the 45 minute playin's, I can do without them, I just lose interest. I also lose interest in some of Pig's songs. HTH I can jibe with also good morning little schoolgirl, and alligator, but good lovin (no matter who sings it I skip it), but I do like lovelight, some of them are fantastic, others though get boring. I do like Mr charlie, two souls. Can do without chinatown shuffle "take it you git to have it" no pig you can have that song back! Hahaha!

Having never seen pig, I do though feel a great energy with the band pre-71. It seems after that it loses some of it until Europe 72. He was great for the band until early 71. Maybe I am being nostalgic of Pig not sure but I don't get the playin's either so it is not just pig's extended jams "git yo hand out of your pocket" reminds me of the line in Rockstar when Mark Walberg has to repeat that line about living a dream and being asked into the band before they go into "Standup and shout" sorry I had mild surgery this week and that movie has b a lot. But seriously, unless it is Darkstar many of the extended jams can be hit or miss, and for me anything over a 20 min jam can lose me.

On another not I am listening to Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison album, fucking tremendous. Have not listened to it for a while and forgot how good it is, many songs remind me of 71,72 dead! Enjoy your evenings and keep "yo hands out of yo pocket's!

Pig's raps always elicit a roll of the eyes for me... here we go again, a drunk, bleating with whiskey fueled inhibition, boring the audience to death while the band nods off. I'm sure in his head he was clever and charming. I'll give him a hall pass on Easy Wind though.

Was he boring the audience to death? I never got that. Is that what you saw when you saw him? Are you posing specualation as fact here? Proof please. thanks
